I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee...Psalm 9:verses 1 and 2a

At a recent stop at our antique mall....I gave myself a gift of this Grandma Moses book by Otto Kallir. I have always--always admired Grandma Moses! She didn't begin painting until age 76, after having 10 kids! She painted more than 25 pictures after turning 100 years old. I wouldn't have that kind of gumption no matter what.
Years ago we bought these two of her prints I came across and had to have. Our neighbor made the frames and I was in 7th heaven....so to speak! This one hung above my little oak desk for years.
This print hangs above my husband's desk now. I have two other coffee table books about Grandma Moses and I never get tired of them =). What richness we may glean from those gone before us...$10. well spent! Also....I am reading a Penny Parker novel on my Kindle and Mildred Wirt wrote it I think. She was a ghost writer for Nancy Drew...and she knew how to keep a story moving along...I'm enjoying it.
